Stent Tek is a medical device company, spun out of Imperial College in 2014, which is developing an electronic catheter guidance technology that enables completely new types of endovascular procedures to be performed.
The initial application is a catheter system that provides a better way for patients to receive hemodialysis for kidney failure.
These patients have a dialysis machine hooked up to a specific vein, known as the vascular access (VA) site, to filter their blood. Although there are several ways to create a VA, less than 15% remain patent for the entire length of a patient’s HD treatment.
In the US, the healthcare system spends $4.6 billion a year on the dialysis population to treat failed VA sites.
Our novel catheter device percutaneously creates a reliable access site that is functionally similar to an autogenous arteriovenous fistula, the current gold standard procedure. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed outside of the operating room by surgeons or radiologists and is significantly simplified compared to the traditional surgical approach.

Many companies, who profess an ability to help with your recruitment processes, will cite their large, high quality network of industry specific contacts as a reason for their differentiation from competitors.
Ultimately however, for all the size and supposed qualities of respective networks, the only relevant detail for a hiring company is how that network translates into a successful employee joining them.
At Guided Solutions we embrace technology to maintain industry links, we understand however, that a network that delivers unique results has its roots in traditional relationship building and the insights these connections yield.
